[CLOSED] MATCH error using extracted temporary hold files

I am writing a fex that needs to MATCH 2 files that I created as temporary hold files as extracts from 2 master files.

When I attempt to MATCH these 2 files - in developer studio - I get a PARSING error on both of them, no matter which one I attempt to read first.

Any ideas??

Thank you!

Tom,

What is the parsing error that you are getting?

Also post the hold file masters and the MATCH logic. We need more information in order to be able to help you.

Thanks for the reply, Ginny.

I have tried to save both the hold files a couple of ways - once as an ALPHA file with MFD, and once as a FOCUS database. Either way, here is the code:

TABLE FILE ONE
field1
filed2
by field3
on table hold as thold0
end
-*
TABLE FILE TWO
fielda
fieldb
by fieldc
on table hold as thold1
end

That's all the code I can enter. When I select the MATCH option in Developer studio, that's when I get the parsing error:

"Error Parsing Master File THOLD0 (0).

That's the only error I get.

Thanks Ginny for help.

Tom, can you please try the following, doing the match in the same focexec:

TABLE FILE ONE
field1
filed2
by field3
on table hold as thold0
end
-*
TABLE FILE TWO
fielda
fieldb
by fieldc
on table hold as thold1
end

Match file …..


Cheers,

Kerry

Was there a fix or workaround to this issue? I ran into the same problem. I worked around the issue by just coding the MATCH by hand. What in the code was causing the parsing error to make you unable to use the match GUI tool? I have looked all round Focal Point and the internet and in all cases they mentioned opening a case.

I don't see any verb in your TABLE requests, so they can't go very far. And of course WF isn't fond of lowercase code. Please post the actual TABLE and MATCH fex code.
